Promise 20376 support

Promise 20376 support

Post by Marcel J.E. Mo » Tue, 31 Dec 2002 21:50:13



Hi,

I've got this Asus A7V8X motherboard that contains a promise 20376
sata-ide (raid) controller. In the latest kernel sources (2.4 and 2.5)
I don't see any mention of this chip yet. Also a google search does
not reveal much about linux support.
Is there already any work in progress for it?

No work, no documentation. If its just a SATA bridge with an existing
ATA controller then you may find you can just add the PCI identifiers
and pretend its a 20276. If it has other new and wonderous features you
may be completely screwed

Pity...
According to the motherboard manual the promisce controller supports one ATA133
channel and two Serial ATA  connectors.

Tried to pretend it to be a 20276 but it seems to fail (redhat kernel 2.4.18-18.8.0custom):

Using pci=biosirq makes no difference.

Its memory mapped I/O for one. Ok thats down to Promise providing docs
to someone I guess. Otherwise its a "winputer"

Quite some time ago I had a look at their Windows drivers. From the
driver structure, the function names and the actual register accesses I
had the impression that this chip differs largely from the ATA/ATAPI
Host Adapter Standard as decribed in the ANSI committee T13 document
1510D (which happens to be the basis of most of the Linux ATA/ATAPI
drivers). I may be wrong and happily defer to the opposite.

Ciao,
  Dani

1. Support for Promise 20376 FastTrack controller???

I have an ASUS P4PE motherboard with an integrated Promise FastTrak376
(20376) controller. Controller is a RAID/SATA/ATA133 controller
capable of supporting some combination of one parallel ATA133 device
and 2 SATA devices.

I am currently running Linux 2.4.20 under RH8.0. I have a single EIDE
hard disk mounted off the standard EIDE controller connector in the
default RAID0 configuration (which of course doesn't mean anything for
a single drive).

I have tried some trivial modifications to the current kernel support
for earlier Promise RAID devices in a so far fruitless attempt to get
the controller and drive to work under Linux. Basically, I have
mimicked the support lines for the 20276 chipset based on the
simplistic assumption that the 20276 and 20376 may be somewhat
similar. [see below for list of my modifications]

The Promise controller does show up in /proc/pci as follows:

  Bus  2, device   4, function  0:
    RAID bus controller: PCI device 105a:3376 (Promise Technology, Inc.) (rev 2).
      IRQ 11.
      Master Capable.  Latency=96.  Min Gnt=4.Max Lat=18.
      I/O at 0xb400 [0xb43f].
      I/O at 0xb000 [0xb00f].
      I/O at 0xa800 [0xa87f].
      Non-prefetchable 32 bit memory at 0xe4800000 [0xe4800fff].
      Non-prefetchable 32 bit memory at 0xe4000000 [0xe401ffff].

However, no sign of it show up in /var/log/messages.

---------------
Here are my kernel additions. Each line is placed after the parallel analogous
line for the 20276 controller:

drivers/ide/ide-pci.c:
#define DEVID_PDC20376 ((ide_pci_devid_t){PCI_VENDOR_ID_PROMISE, PCI_DEVICE_ID_PROMISE_20376})

drivers/ide/ide-pci.c:
  {DEVID_PDC20376,"PDC20376",     PCI_PDC202XX, ATA66_PDC202XX, INIT_PDC202XX,  NULL,           {{0x00,0x00,0x00}, {0x00,0x00,0x00}},  OFF_BOARD,       0 },

drivers/ide/ide-pci.c:
          case PCI_DEVICE_ID_PROMISE_20376:

drivers/ide/ide-pci.c:
              IDE_PCI_DEVID_EQ(d->devid, DEVID_PDC20376) ||

drivers/ide/pdc202xx.c:
         case PCI_DEVICE_ID_PROMISE_20376:

drivers/ide/pdc202xx.c:
         case PCI_DEVICE_ID_PROMISE_20376:

drivers/ide/pdc202xx.c:
         case PCI_DEVICE_ID_PROMISE_20376:

drivers/ide/pdc202xx.c:
         case PCI_DEVICE_ID_PROMISE_20376:

drivers/pci/devlist.h:
  DEVICE(105a,3376,"PDC20376 IDE")

drivers/pci/pci.ids:
    3376  PDC20376 IDE

include/linux/pci_ids.h:
#define PCI_DEVICE_ID_PROMISE_20376     0x3376

----------------------------------------------

These changes didn't seem to make any difference to either the
/proc/pci entry or to the syslog startup messages. 'Fdisk -l' and
/proc/partitions obviously still doesn't show the disk.

Any thoughts on how to get this to work?
